Tremor Twofer, North Face + Hourglass, & NW Face Pattison

Postby skykilo » Thu Jan 20, 2011 8:19 pm

Two Spearhead gems: Tremor is in the distance on the left, with the North Face on its left. Pattison is on the right with its obvious Northwest Face. There is so much fun to be had out here.
Image

Naomi skis some nice snow toward Decker from the Spearhead.
Image

Nuevo amigo, we met a nice guy named Max from San Martin de los Andes on the Decker Glacier.

Naomi skis more nice snow toward Pattison from Decker.
Image

Naomi's shot of me and Max above an awesome wind feature by Pattison.

Naomi on the same wind feature.
Image

Max on the summit of Tremor.
Image

The North Face of Tremor looked beautiful. I made some quick turns toward a knob we deemed safe then Max made a ski cut across the top. Good luck getting anything to go.
Image

Max enjoys the powder.
Image

Naomi skis steep powder.
Image
"That's the first time I've ever had the snow sluff like that."

Naomi tours toward Tremor again. Our tracks are in view above her on the North Face. Let's ski the Hourglass!
Image

Coastal snowpack love and nice light.
Image

Hourglass Couloir, our tracks are visible on Tremor. The line drops into the second avalanche fan from the left. The top bit was nasty, icy crust from being windblasted but it got better.
Image

Naomi tolerates some very exposed shenanigans to gain the entrance to the line.
Image

I just want you to notice my pink sunglasses.
Image

This line offers the fine pleasure of turns with beautiful exposure.
Image

In the couloir, the powder was perfect.
Image

Pattison was on the way home and Max had already made a skin track to the top. Why not ski the Northwest Face?

The powder was awesome on Pattison!
Image

The snow was so nice, we both enjoyed skiing it in one continuous go. Naomi's turn.
Image

Wow what a day! Excellent effort, Naomi!

I can't recall any bad skiing, Andy, but we only skied groomers below 1800 m or so. Fresh groomers where the snow hasn't even set after dark: so fun.
